E-bay anyone?

As I contemplate alternative venues for selling my wares, I am thinking about e-bay as an option.

Here's what Alisha Vincent, a sort of artist's coach says about e-bay

Here's what
Art Business News says about e-bay (this is the article Alisha Vincent refers to)

Here's what e-bay says about selling on ebay

I think the trick is to advertise my product outside of just posting it on e-bay, because, as we all know, there are about 859 kabillion things listed on e-bay, including this and this. Actually I'd really like to have that optigan, but that's beside the point. The point is, without advertising, my items would be lost.

I don't think, as Ms. Vincent claims, selling on e-bay will devalue my work. In addition, it may help move some of the inventory that doesn't do the best at shows, because it may seem like a better "deal" on e-bay. I will continue to do research this week and post more articles as I find them.

All this, of course is partially in preparation for my marketing class that starts next week!
